I’m so proud to introduce you to Letters by Mrs. Evelyn Merritt. Letters is a Reader’s Theatre script chronicling correspondence between the battlefront and home. Letters from wars ranging from the US Civil War up to the Iraq War are interwoven in this visceral and theatrical piece. A real gem.
For many wars, letters home were the only form of communication between soldiers and their loved ones.
Letters is thought-provoking and character-driven. It’s not hard to see Marie, Jim, Caleb, Sarah, Harriet and Robert reaching out with pen and paper.
An excellent and challenging Reader’s Theatre script.
